Northiam is a worsted yarn sourced, scoured, spun and dyed exclusively from the finest Bluefaced Leicester at a British mill used by fashion giants such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Paul Smith.
This yarn is suitably luxurious, velvety against bare skin with long, semi-lustrous fibres that have a natural drape, holding a block beautifully. Spun with a rounded ply it has excellent stitch definition for cables, lace and other textures while creating beautifully balanced stockinette.The softest non-superwash Bluefaced Leicester you will ever feel, Northiam is low pilling with long-staple fibres that are excellent for both durable and delicate knits.
